Motorbikes are economical means of transport in Manipur. This photograph is remarkable for two reasons. A driver with just one pillion passenger, and both are wearing helmets.
These children are having fun riding with their father down the main street in Moreh. I cringe when I see children with their bare feet close to the hot exhaust pipe.
The child is standing in the footwell of the scooter, holding onto the handlebars and if you look closely you can see another passenger with a yellow hat sitting behind the driver.
I don’t think that these children are intentionally flicking “V” signs at me. It looks like the first motorcycle with different passengers, but the same driver. Showing off his new machine, perhaps.
Wet muddy streets in Moreh must make riding a motorbike tricky.
How do you get your chickens home alive when you are on a motor scooter? Easy, just string them on either side.
